After studying composition with Vitorio Giannini and Vincent Persichetti at the Juilliard School in New York City, Bernstein attended UCLA, where he received an Outstanding Graduate of the College Award, a Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship, and a Chancellor's Doctoral Teaching Fellowship while working with American composer Roy Harris.
